    Rage against humanity

    I am alone and I have been very unsuccessful finding friends online to talk to. No one writes back. Online is easier for me because they write in their little post about what they like or are interested in. It makes it easier for me to strike up a conversation when I know something about the...

    The Vestibular system and the gyroscope microphone

    I had a strong belief for the past 6 years that it was the ear's balance system not the cochlea that was responsible for auditory hallucinations like voices. I put it together in my head that unexplained science like gravity, dreaming, schizoid, were all connected and that the balance system was...

    Am I Selfish?

    Sometimes I wish I could find just one person who completely understands me. But then I think, is that selfish of me?
